Curriculum goals

  • Training proficient, knowledgeable, compassionate, and effective experts in psychosomatic medicine through diverse patient experiences in multiple settings enhanced by seminars and effective supervision.
  • Preparing fellows to be leaders in their field through building effective liaison relationships with other specialties and furthering their skills of professionalism.
  • Fostering lifelong learning through integration of academic activities, teaching, and scholarly projects locally through Baystate Medical Center practices and nationally through professional organizations.
  • Teaching that promotes recognition and acceptance of individual and cultural differences, respect for diversity, and understanding of social determinants of health and structural health inequities.

We offer a flexible, customizable experience in a variety of practice settings including inpatient work at Baystate Medical Center, virtual inpatient consultation at community hospital sites, and outpatient integrated behavioral health and memory disorders clinic.
